The 2019 Oregon Legislature convened on Monday January 14 at the Capitol in Salem. The first week on the session will be for the purposes of organization and training for all legislators. The work of the legislature will start in earnest on Tuesday January 22. Prior to the beginning of the session, pre-session filed bills became public on January 10. Nearly 1,500 bills were introduced. There is a very real possibility there may be more than 3,000 by the time session adjourns in June. While this like an overwhelming number and business owners and Chamber members may find this daunting, they can follow the legislature on their website by going to the Oregon State Legislature.
